Essential analysis of al Qaeda's CBRN weapon strategy

About the Author

Ben Cole is Honorary Research Fellow in the Department of Psychological Sciences, University of Liverpool. He specialises in the process by which individuals become radicalised into violent extremism; terrorist decision making with regard to CBRN terrorism; and real-time monitoring and analysis of conflicts and terrorist movements using online media. He worked on the development of the PVE tool and guidance, and lectures regularly on CBRN terrorism. He is the author of The Changing Face of Terrorism (I.B.Tauris), co-author of Martyrdom: Radicalisation and Terrorist Violence Among British Muslims and editor of Conflict, Terrorism and the Media in Asia.


`Ben Cole has written a carefully researched and illuminating analysis of a key issue in al Qaeda strategy, one that has been the subject of much political manipulation in Western circles. It is a welcome contribution to a subject that badly needs this kind of examination rather than the ill-informed speculation and rhetoric that is so common.' - Paul Rogers, Emeritus Professor of Peace Studies, Bradford University and author of Irregular War: The New Threat from the Margins (I.B.Tauris, 2017)
